F1 pushing ahead with ‘halo’ solution, faster tyres for 2017

Formula 1 will press ahead with its plans to protect the drivers’ cockpits in 2017 season, according to Alex Wurz.

Earlier, the Grand Prix Drivers’ Association (GPDA) president said his F1 racing members were unanimously in favour of adding the ‘halo’-style solution to the cars.

But rumours from the most recent F1 meetings in London and Milan suggested bosses are still yet to agree about how better to protect the drivers’ heads in future.

The BBC, however, is now quoting Wurz as saying the plan is moving forward.

“Obviously the drivers are happy that the technical team representatives agreed for the additional head protection to come in for 2017 following the drivers’ recommendation and the FIA research,” he said.

Also on track is the push for faster-cornering tyres for 2017, after several F1 drivers accepted Pirelli’s invitation to join the Milan meeting on Tuesday.

An insider said: “In terms of ensuring the right people heard the issues, it was a good meeting and we made progress”.
